What security features are included with Google Workspace?

Google Workspace provides various security measures and automatic defenses powered by Google AI to stop threats from disrupting work. This aims to protect your organization’s data and infrastructure from cyber threats in a multitude of ways.

Context-aware access: Google Workspace employs contextual data and advanced machine learning to grant access to resources based on user and device context. This ensures that only authorized users can access sensitive information and resources, even if their credentials are compromised.

Data loss prevention (DLP): Google Workspace provides DLP capabilities to prevent sensitive data from being accidentally or intentionally shared outside of your organization. DLP rules can be configured to detect and block data transfers based on file type, content, and destination.

Information rights management (IRM): IRM allows you to control how sensitive information is shared within and outside your organization. You can set permissions on files and emails to restrict access, printing, forwarding, and downloading.

Trust rules and AI classification for Google Drive: Google Drive uses trust rules and AI classification to identify and protect sensitive files. These rules can detect sensitive information based on file type, content, and context, and apply appropriate protection measures.

Automatic email spam, phishing, and malware defenses: Google Workspace incorporates machine learning and advanced filters to detect and block spam, phishing, and malware emails. These defenses help protect users from malicious emails that could lead to data breaches or malware infections.

Encryption of data in transit and at rest: Google Workspace encrypts data in transit and at rest using industry-standard encryption algorithms. This ensures that your data is protected from unauthorized access, even if it is intercepted or stored in Google’s data centers.

Audit logs: Google Workspace maintains comprehensive audit logs that record all user activity and administrative actions. These logs can be used to investigate security incidents and ensure compliance with regulations.

Access transparency, management, and approvals: Google Workspace provides transparency into user access to resources, allowing you to track who has access to what data. You can also manage access permissions and require approvals for sensitive actions.
Client-side encryption: Google Workspace supports client-side encryption, which allows you to encrypt data stored on users’ devices. This ensures that data remains protected even if the device is lost or stolen.

Zero trust capabilities: Google Workspace incorporates zero trust principles, which require continuous authentication and authorization for access to resources. This ensures that only authorized users can access data, even if they are on a trusted network.
By implementing these security measures and following best practices, you can significantly enhance your Google Workspace security posture and protect your organization’s data from evolving threats.

How Dark Blue Technologies Can Help

By working with Google Workspace properties for over a decade, we have experience in implementing better security practices in and out of Google Workspace. We have a three-step approach to increasing security for Workspace that works to improve default settings, educate employees, and provide threat monitoring and response.

  1. Improve Existing Setup: This includes reviewing existing security policies and procedures and implementing best-practice settings. Introducing multi-factor authentication, password policies, enabling email encryption, restricting third-party app access, and investing in Data Loss Prevention solutions will better protect your account, data, and employees.
  2. Education and Protection: Regular security awareness training can help employees identify and avoid phishing attacks, social engineering scams, and other common cybersecurity threats. Employees are the most common point of failure in a security system, so implementing regular security awareness training is a must. We further implement advanced phishing and malware protection features that can help identify and block malicious emails and attachments. These features can scan emails for suspicious content and links, protecting users from phishing attacks and malware infections.
  3. Threat Monitoring and Response: Utilizing trusted first-party and third-party tools, we monitor and respond to threats as they emerge. Whether it’s a sensitive document being shared externally, or a brute force attack on an account, we monitor and respond to these threats in real-time.

By implementing these strategies and following security best practices, you can significantly enhance your Google Workspace security posture and protect your organization’s data from evolving threats.
